Luxury Holiday Rental Ronda

"We checked out this morning and have just arrived back in Ireland. To say we loved the villa would be a massive understatement. It was a brilliant holiday made even better by the wonderful villa and especially the amazing garden and pool. It really is fantastic. Lawrence and Terri were great with us. Immediate responses to any queries. Very helpful. You will definitely need a car to get around but there are local taxis also. Also don’t trust google maps - use Lawrences travel notes. Highly recommended and would love to go back."


"Estupendo todo!! Muy recomendable."


"Esta semana que hemos pasado en La Cancela la sido fantástico!!" (This week spent in La Cancela has been fantastic!!)

"We have spent a perfect vacation in Villa Cancela!! The house was exactly what we were looking for; lovely and cozy and I would stay forever in that marvellous garden... Missing it already!! We will be back soon!!"


"We had such a great time at Patti's place! The house is charming, very well equipped and situated in a wonderful valley. Birds singing all day, olive trees as far as you can look and the beautiful city of Ronda very close. There are lots of interesting spots to visit within 1 hour drive but you can also just relax in the nice garden at the pool. The communication was quick, friendly and very helpful. Heaven!"


"Very comfortable, beautiful, private villa. Very thoughtful welcome package, and useful tips and advice. We really loved our stay and could have stayed longer."

Sarah J.

"What a wonderful week it has been in Villa La Cancela. In the company of Marmaduke, we have thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful garden, pool and the romantic bench in the last rays of sunlight each evening. The house was so cosy such that even rainy mornings were still very enjoyable. This week was truly relaxing and we`ll remember it dearly. "

Willemijn DeN.

"First impressions of the house (and Lawrence and Terri) were most welcoming. The more time we spent here, the more we appreciated the house and the careful planting of the garden, which looks like it will be full of interest for most of the year. Thanks for a wonderful, peaceful haven. Much appreciated!"

Tanya W.

"Thank you for an absolutely wonderful fortnight at La Cancela. We have all had a fantastic holiday and feel very sad to be leaving. Thank you Lawrence for all your help and advice.

We loved the villa and have really appreciated the little luxurious – the Floris toiletries and lovely bed linen which have made it feel extra special. We have enjoyed the garden and have all loved the pool especially our two boys who say it has been paradise!!

Our favourite meal for us was at El Muelle De Arriate. It was so good we went back again for lunch on our last day! We also had a nice meal at Molino del Santo in Benaojan and another at De Locas Tapas in Ronda. We would love to return one day. "

"From the moment we arrived to the warmest of welcomes, our stay here EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. The villa is perfect in the rural setting but close enough to Ronda that made visiting the many sights and restaurants an easy experience. We took up many of the recommendations and enjoyed them all. Coming back in the heat of the day to the refreshing pool in this lovely garden was bliss. A great visit which will provide us with wonderful memories. Thank you."

"We are just reflecting on our second stay at La Cancela, this time for two weeks. The villa is a fabulous retreat in a most pleasant and interesting setting. We saw woodpeckers in the morning and keep your eyes open while poolside for an eagle or two catching the thermals in the late afternoon. All in all a great holiday, great villa and marvellous part of the world. Big thanks."

David and Angela

Jack, Susanne, Sofie and Floortje

"We have had a fantastic week in this beautiful clean villa in a quiet environment with lots of privacy!! Special thanks and her team for the excellent service (never seen before!!). A memorable moment we won't forget soon. Everything was just PERFECT!!! Every year we take a week or two but this time was significantly better – (quality villa/pool/service/towels/welcome pack/breakfast/garden etc. too much to list!! Thanks for everything and please continue in the same way."

Tariq Rabiha and family

"My wife and I and adult son stayed here for a week in July. The property was exactly as described on the website - unusual in our experience - and we had a really good stay. We were very well looked after by the property managers, who gave us great advice, on where to eat and shop - indispensable! Ronda is perfect for rest and recuperation away from the teeming coast, and I would highly recommend La Cancela as a place to stay."

Robin Landman
